Celebrated soprano Solveig Kringelborn will perform alongside the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra at the BBC Proms in Royal Albert Hall on Friday 9 September.

Kringelborn is one of the most renowned Scandinavian sopranos in recent times and has become a sought after opera and concert performer across the world. She is particularly famed for her interpretation of works of Norwegian and Finnish composers, whilst on the operatic stage she regularly receives praise, not only for her singing, but for her acting ability. Her appearances include the San Francisco Opera, La Monnaie in Brussels, the Liceu in Barcelona, Covent Garden, numerous performances at the Metropolitan Opera, the Salzburg, Aix-en-Provence and Glyndebourne festivals and with orchestras such as the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Leipzig Gewandhaus and the Israel Philharmonic.

The BBC Proms runs from 15 July to 10 September and is an annual music festival comprising over seventy Prom concerts. A Prom means a promenade concert, or a concert where part of the audience stands in a "promenade" area of the hall. Most concerts at this festival take place at the Royal Albert Hall, London – the venue has 1,000 standing places available at each Prom and the traditionally low prices allow the audience to enjoy world-class concerts for just £4.
